Our Mission

To help address water challenges in Indigenous communities in Canada through education, training and meaningful collaboration.

Our Values

Everyone has a right to safe, clean water.

The water crisis in Indigenous communities in Canada is unacceptable.

Skills training is critical to building sustainable solutions to water challenges in First Nations communities.

Collaborative programs with First Nations communities should integrate Indigenous values, knowledge, customs and traditions at every opportunity.

Our Approach

It is our approach that sets us apart. This approach has lead to successful partnerships and strong community up-take of our programs:

Meaningful collaborations and respectful relationships.

Our work with Indigenous advisory council members, industry specialists and First Nations communities ensures that we establish trust and learn from each other — delivering sustainable water programs that meet local priorities.

We hire and train locally.

We hire locally and train primarily young Indigenous adults to ensure communities retain the skills and knowledge gained where they can have a long-term impact.

Blending of traditional knowledge and western science.

With our partners, we weave Indigenous knowledge, values, and customs with western water science education, and interns and youth involved in our programs get out on the land and in the water.
